Firm growth expected for PIN FRs

Market studies expect significant growth for mineral and phosphorus PIN flame retardants over the coming years. Grand View Research report “Non halogenated flame retardants market analysis” predicts a 7.1% growth for aluminium hydroxide (inorganic PIN) and 8.3% growth for phosphorus-based FRs for the period to 2020. It anticipates a strong development of non-halogenated flame retardant use in polyolefins, epoxy resins and UPE (unsaturated polyester), with continuing development in construction and electronics applications.

Market Research notes strong growth in the flame retardant market worldwide, particularly in Asia, with 9.3% growth for phosphorus FRs. Also, Roskill Information Services predicts further market penetration for flame retardant polymers, driven by infrastructure spending, increasing demand for safety linked to living standards (especially in Asia) and higher fire safety standards and legislation in BRIC countries. Roskill predicts 4% growth for the inorganic PIN FR magnesium dihydroxide MDH.
